The Heartland Environmental Justice Center (HEJC) is hiring up to three Community Program Coordinators specializing in environmental and/or energy justice in both rural and urban communities.
The coordinators will work with the HEJC staff, partners, program participants, and others to help communities build their capacity to access local conditions and identify environmental and energy justice needs.
They will also provide training and technical help to advance environmental and energy justice while working with regulatory agencies, municipal staff, elected officials, tribal governments, nonprofit organizations, and community organizers. The HEJC encourages people of any race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age or ability to apply for the positions that offer a positive impact on the greater good of a community and the environment for generations to come.
Work-life balance is a priority as coordinators will earn 20+ vacation days and 12 days of sick leave per year in addition to 8 annual paid holidays designated by the State of Kansas.
Coordinators can work from anywhere in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska or from adjoining tribal nations. For those who prefer it, office space is available at the WSU Environmental Finance Center on the Innovation Campus. Occasional travel is required.
The salary is $42,600 to $68,100 depending on education and experience.
